Manipulative Block Set
  • Used in all levels from Primer through Algebra 1 (except Epsilon)
  • Colorful 88-piece base-10 stacking blocks
  • Five each of 2s, 3s, 4s, 6s, 7s, 8s, 9s, and 100s
  • Seven 5s
  • Twenty units
  • Twenty-one 10s
  • Used to teach all aspects of arithmetic
  • Use with Inserts for key algebra and decimal concepts

Two sets simplify some lessons by allowing the student to have at least 10 of each piece. We also recommend having two sets of blocks when doing larger problems or when working with more than one student.

Each set of Manipulative Blocks includes a two-sided poster featuring Decimal Street and the Block Clock. Decimal Street is a fun and simple way of illustrating place value and regrouping to young learners, and can be used with several of the courses.
